Looking for Snip.exe to (Un)register Components

Looking for Snip.exe to (Un)register Components

Question:
I’m looking for a copy of snip.exe. This program registers/unregisters components/DLLs under a given directory.

Answer:
I don’t know about SNIP, but how about an even easier method?

Copy all the data between (but not including) the two rows of #s below, open Notepad, paste my data into Notepad and save it as a file with a .reg extension. Then double-click that file.

Now when you double-click on an OLE executable (.ocx, .dll, or .exe), you will get an opportunity to register or unregister it. You can do a search from a subdirectory for files with the .dll or .ocx extension and then select all of them and right-click to register or unregister them. I do this all the time in my project directories.

Here is the code:
